Young people took to the streets Saturday, March 25, for a Youth 4 Trans Liberation March, which started at Turk and Taylor streets in the Tenderloin and ended outside San Francisco City Hall. Organized by the Transgender District, the event was sponsored by District 5 Supervisor Dean Preston, gay Supervisors Matt Dorsey (D6) and Rafael Mandelman (D8), Congregation Sha'ar Zahav, and Parivar Bay Area. It drew attention to the hundreds of anti-LGBTQ bills proposed in numerous states that seek to erode rights, especially for the trans and gender-nonconforming communities, and to amplify trans voices. The march was also to kick off Transgender Week of Visibility, which culminates March 31 with the Transgender Day of Visibility.
